9:20 am
amendments adapted in july so as we start with the presentations in the past i'll start with highlights of projects that are completed fund out of this category and projects underway the van ness environmental about his bus rapid transit phase is complete and highlighting the market street which is a precursor was funded from the category and admission gooeven improvements underway i'm sorry the geary brt and the early design projects schwarzenegger the funding be their and the funding for the precurse for the grant bay area program that was funded by the
9:21 am
congestion agency block grant proposal before you for thought 5 year plan structures the can go with two primary sub categories the brt this is where you see geary and van ness primarily and the goal was to maximize the dowel to finance those to get them to completion the total prop k funds to the project will end up at $36 million with all project phases this programming that's in the 5 year programming is $15 million more than the 2009 plan but it ends up mrelts and rounding up the van ness brt to
9:22 am
start in 2015 the total prop k will be $44 million with 2 hundred and 63 estimated cost at this .1 of the things that bryan alluded to in his presentation it is property to be funded at two categories to maximize the funding for the transit effectiveness i'll adjust that in a moment the prop k funds for geary are proposed to come out of the brt we're working closely with the sfmta to determine early implementation elements and working on the scope and scheduling for what those projects will look like second sub category p of this category is the transit
9:23 am
effectiveness the primary funding for the muni implementation of the transit efficientness project the total prop k that will end up on in project is $17 million as a hundred and $43 million cost the position of $13 million has been allocated to advance the group 3 the planning and work that is not eligible should the general allocation plan for the funding there's some face holders for the competitive match and the capital phase holder project. >> can you give us a few examples of what might be in the group 3 projection. >> as far as the actual route.
9:24 am
>> in just a moment jonathan rivers from the sfmta is pulling something up on his computer; right? >> we'll hear from him later. >> okay. i'll continue on the next slide all of the fund in this particular category mr. be advanced over the next 5ier period so after this 5 years no funding in the category, however, it is an advanced for priorities to move this project forward in this timeframe. >> the amendment the first of the two amendments that's before you today is one to say the transit enhancement category it adds the geary bus rapid transit project are $30 million in 1718
9:25 am
construction funds and that was done in order to maximize the amount of money in the brt for the t r that so we've added geary to the transit enhancement category with the results to push out the customer first project that had funds programmed in the early part of the 5 year plans but those proctologist projects will be funded for the prop k program so everything is funded it is moving things around and through an amendment because of the timing of what the fund are needed it's finance cost neutral the last of the amendments the bart capacity amendment to add the balboa park construction project are $2 million in prop k funds for $15 million this project has experienced
9:26 am
cost increases due to the lergs to minimize the service to access maintenance facilities there was about 9 hundred thousand prop k fund that should have carried forward to the 2014 update and didn't this reck he files back it has experiences a cost increase so it will be covered by this prop k programming that's proposed this is also a san francisco priority with the transportation fund presented in 2009. with that, i can bring up jonathan rivers to answer our questions about the project >> thank you. >> hi jonathan rivers with the mta what are some of the projects in the t e p those include promotions on the m line the 2819 avenue they'll be

think it is key that in the july 15th minutes you talk about the bart specifically and reach the design platforms like the ones in mexico with respect to the wheelchair loading this has to do with the access on buses we're trying to have buses that have municipality boarding we von have been one foundation with a crack do you keep building or repair the crack first, the buses don't meet the capacity if you go on one transit line with the brt proposed you whether on dpaer or geneva the concern is the buses only have so moved so much room between the doors and platform
9:29 am
it's hard to board many of the designs over sea whether in europe or other criticize around the world there be looking at mid boarding with a door widower span allows people the wheelchair people that's an important key that's what we need to have a the housing development in the city. >> thank you, mr. goodman any public comment on that item? seeing none, public comment is closed. >> i wonder if there rivers can respond to the mid boarding suggestion from mr. goodman or how the brt platforms are going to be completed. >> sure thoinl jonathan rivers with the mta we have one on van
